Primitive Traditions Quilt Collection

 

Introducing the new collection of quilt designs 
featuring Primitive Traditions, Folk Art Stars and 
Prairie Plaids fabrics!
Primitive Traditions ~ Designed by Pam Buda
This quilt is the collection namesake, Primitive Traditions.  I know it may look very hard, but in fact it won't be as hard as it looks.  Almost all of the units can be made larger and trimmed down.  It uses 2 Deb Tucker trimming rulers.  And, I will be making a technique video showing exactly how to use the rulers, and make these blocks!

I love the secondary, circular design the kite units create, and the Folk Art Stars fabrics are fussy cut in the center of the pieced Friendship Star blocks.  For me, black border quilts are among the most striking, stunning quilts as the black fabric just makes all of the other colors pop!

Folk Art Stars ~ Designed by Pam Buda
Next up....Folk Art Stars quilt.  This quilt also features fussy cut centers of the Folk Art Stars fabric collection, and all of the prints from the Primitive Traditions fabrics, but isn't as much work as the Primitive Traditions quilt.  Ohio Star blocks are framed with black sashing and finished with the blue Folk Art Stars border.  

Hickory Sticks ~ Designed by Pam Buda
Next is Hickory Sticks....the easiest of the large quilts.  The Folk Art Stars print is in the center of each block with no fussy cut stars.  The blocks begin from strip sets, so easy peasy!  Again...a stunning black border makes the rest of the colors really stand out.

Tiny Baskets ~ Designed by Pam Buda
I have been wanting to make this quilt for a long time.  If you're like me and LOVE making small blocks, you will really enjoy making this quilt.  My Tiny Baskets quilt measures 16 x 20 - a small quilt to be sure!  
Patriotic Folk Art Stars Table Topper ~ Designed by Pam Buda
I wanted to design a very simple table topper that showcased the Folk Art Stars prints.
This is the patriotic version.  The Folk Art Stars Topper patterns will be available at your LQS and HeartspunQuilts.com as a free, downloadable pattern.  Kits will be available for pre-order.  Here are the other holiday versions of the topper design.

Christmas Folk Art Stars Table Topper ~ Designed by Pam Buda
All of the quilt images shown here are Electric Quilt images and appear much darker than they will really be in person.  Here is a photo of the Folk Art Stars prints.....
You can see they are not as dark as the EQ images make them appear.  

The Primitive Traditions cottons, the Folk Art Star cottons and the Primitive Plaid wovens will be arriving at your LQS and at Heartspun Quilts late March, 2021.  Please.....ask for them at your LQS and always buy first from your favorite quilt shop.  They need us all to support them and keep them in business!  

If your shop doesn't have these fabrics, they will be available on my website.  Very soon, I will be taking pre-orders for the Primitive Traditions, Folk Art Stars, Hickory Sticks and Tiny Baskets quilts.  If you're interested, you must pre-order your kit with a small deposit.  I will only order fabric for the pre-ordered kits, so think about it.  I'll write a blog post, send a newsletter, and post on social media when I have all of the final details and can begin taking pre-orders. 

The Folk Art Star Table Toppers will also be available for pre-order.  

I encourage you to follow me on Facebook and Instagram as I will be posting photos of my progress while making the quilts.  There's so much more good quilting stuff coming this year, not only from me, but from Marcus Fabrics, too!  

We're still in the deep freeze here in Chicagoland, and will be for about the next two weeks.  So, I intend to be sewing, sewing, sewing!  

Stay safe, my friends, and be well......

Introducing Folk Art Stars & Primitive Traditions!

 

I have been waiting months to be able to show you my new Folk Art Stars fabrics!!!  Oh boy....am I having fun working with them and will be able to show you what I've designed very soon.

Folk Art Stars is a companion collection to my new Primitive Traditions collection below.


There are black and gray fabrics.....

Blues and reds......

Greens, browns, golds and purples.....

And some very fun neutrals!  Folk Art Stars and Primitive Traditions is also joined by a small collection of classic homespun wovens called Primitive Plaids.  All three collections will be in your LQS late March, 2021.

I'll show you the 5 quilts I have designed using these super fun collections in my next post, so, stay tuned!  I will also be showing some behind-the-scenes photos on Instagram and Facebook, so be sure to follow me on social media.

I have been super busy designing and creating.  Unfortunately, I go through spells where I am doing a lot, but can't yet share what I'm up to.  So, I'm always happy when new things are announced, and I can share them with you.

One of the new things I am excited to share is......

...we're beginning another Monday's With Marcus event!  Save the date and mark your calendars to check in with the Monday's With Marcus Facebook page for the big project reveal.  

Remember, the big reveal on March 1st shows you all of the designers' upcoming projects.  We will once again be featuring small, do-able projects for your stitching pleasure.  

The patterns for the projects are free on each designers' showcase day.  You can order kits beginning March 1st so they will be in your hands on the day the patterns are available.  And, many of us will be doing new technique videos....so you're sure to learn a lot, too!  All the how-to's and details will be forthcoming right here on my blog, and on the Monday's With Marcus Facebook page.  Exciting stuff!

Remember, I encourage you to follow me on Instagram and Facebook for behind-the-scenes posts that don't appear here on the blog.  


Be well, my friends....and keep on stitching!
